Allen and Goewey families
of Berlin and Lansingburgh

These photographs were contributed to this website by Joan Redmond. Joan adds that in the photo of the Alexander Allen family, the eldest people in the picture were her great-great-great-grandparents. Joan also sends the captions. If you have photographs you'd like to contribute to this website, they'd be very welcome! You may scan them and send them in the body of an email message to me, Debby Masterson.

Alexander Allen family of Berlin, ca 1885

Front row: Annie E. Hunt Allen (1849-1929), wife of Stanton; Stanton P. Allen (1849-1901), son of elder Alexander Allen; Celia Clark Allen (1831-1903), wife of elder Alexander Allen; and Alexander S. Allen (1829-1898).

Back row: second from left: Itta Allen Fellner (1868-1953); fourth from left: Ella Goewey Allen (1862-1933), wife of the younger Alexander Allen; fifth from left: Cora Mae Allen Hollins (1884-1947), held by her father; sixth from left: Alexander ("Alex") S. Allen (1859-1942), son of the elder Alexander Allen.

The other people in the photo are probably the rest of the Allen siblings, in-laws and children. I just don't know which name goes with which face. I am Cora Allen Hollins's great-granddaughter. Her father worked at Cluett and Peabody, in the sewing-machine department. My grandmother says that her father had a bicycle dealership.
